3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours copper with a small white wisp. Taste is butterscotch and caramel sweentess with grass and earthy hops. As always a little too sickly sweet but always enjoyable on the nose.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
750ml bottle -
Aroma - fruit forward, caramel, churned butter, a touch of wood..very strange. No noticeable sherry notes.
Appearance- light golden body, clearn with a 2" white head....looks like a cream soda
Mouthfeel - light bodied, medium carbonation
Flavor - caramel, fruity, light wood with some corn notes and light sherry
Overall - pretty blah for a Scotch Ale. Very strange beer. It looks completely different than what I was expecting. Not bad, a bit underwhelming.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale amber pour. The aroma is sweet and slightly butterscotchy with a bit of soft fruitiness. It’s slightly vineous with a nice oakiness and a touch of pepper. There a bit of lingering fruitiness. Pretty decent.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Another old I&G rating. Tried this alongside some Oloroso whiskey. Poured golden. Aroma was grassy, some spices as well. The oloroso casking came through in the flavour more, red wine,and caramel. Overall preferred the Scotch but this was nice as well.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
15th March 2014
Clear bright gold - amber beer. A small and very pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and surprisingly minerally crisp. Fresh light malt, thin cream and light barrel induced vanilla. Light touch of dried fruits and a whisper of bitter wood. Finishes light and fruity fresh with the sherry finally making an appearance in the aftertaste. This was lighter than expected or wanted but in kinda works and the beer slipped down easy.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Not anymore special than the other ’special’ releases. A dissapointment, butterscotch is the dominant aroma.
